I have a friend here on board. He had a girlfriend for 7 years (I used the term “had” because what they have were only memories). He told me that they were happy, that they have many plans in life. He even told me that they are also planning to settle down and maybe have a family since he can already sustain them financially. But then suddenly, his girlfriend broke up with him. Her reason was that she has already found someone new and these are the exact words she has sent to my friend: “I’m sorry Dan. I’ve found him. I’ve finally found the happiness that I was searching from you for 7 years. I think he’s the one for me. I didn’t mean for this to happen but it did happen, and I’m very-very sorry for that. I hope someday you’ll forgive me for this and I hope you’ll understand why I did this.” My heart was broken as I’ve seen the tears fell down from my friend’s eyes while he’s showing that message to me. I felt his pain. I feel very sad for him. I tried my best to cheer him up, saying all the best inspirational words, but it’s no use. It’s like a part of him has been ripped-off from his system. Then he makes me realized something. He made me realize that time, plans, promises, and memories aren’t actually an assurance that someone will stay. If he or she found someone much better than you (Or that he/she thought so), then he/she will say goodbye—– boom, in a blink of an eye, gone in the wind, just like that. Sad thing is that they’ve taken a part of you while they leave, and it’ll leave a scar that’ll forever be embedded in your system. If they’re no longer happy being with you, then even if you beg for them to stay they will still leave, and you cannot do anything about it.
We were so confident that we are enough for them, but we are not. We will never be enough for the wrong people. 💔
